John Taylor of Caroline’s Tyranny Unmasked explains in plain, but passionate language the dangers of centralized power, with a focus on government interference in commerce, along with taxation, parties and even so-called “national defence.” Written in 1822, it’s an essential - but ignored - polemic against the tyranny of powerful, centralized government.

Of all the compromises which produced the Constitution at the Philadelphia Convention of 1787, the Three-Fifths Compromise is probably considered the most controversial today. But in order to understand what it actually was all about, it’s important to set aside preconceived notions and look at the history behind it - going back more than a decade to the Articles of Confederation.

To the Founding generation, Trial by Jury was considered an indispensable tool against the power of government. Although supporters of the monster state today want juries to only judge the facts of the case before them, they actually have a duty to consider not just the facts, but the law itself.

ATF officials met with manufacturers last week to discuss "issues of mutual concern." That is, new legislation or executive action directed at "ghost guns." They want more unconstitutional federal regulations. But even if they're able to get it on the books, with tools, parts and 3D printing providing more ease of access for the general public, it's possible that enforcement could be doomed from the start.

Many state legislators who claim to support the 2nd Amendment have a bad foundation on the right to keep and bear arms - and a bad foundation on the Constitution as a whole. So, you shouldn’t be surprised when their proposals do nothing to protect liberty - or even make things worse.

Of all the Acts of Parliament that angered the American colonists and led to the Revolutionary War, the Declaratory Act is possibly one of the most important, but probably the least-known. It attempted to affirm unlimited, centralized power over the colonies, and patriots repeatedly railed against its assertion of British power "in all cases whatsoever"

Supporters of the monster state want you to believe that finding the original, legal meaning of much of the constitution is impossible. Guess what? They’re lying. But on the other hand, some parts of the document aren’t as easy to understand as some allies of the Founders say they are.

Personal Liberty Laws in response to the Federal Fugitive Slave Acts of 1793 and 1850 were some of the most successful and important nullification efforts in history. But they didn’t come out of nowhere. Quaker opposition to slavery had a long tradition and led to the formation of the first abolition society in American in 1775.

A radical Change in the “Principles, Opinions, Sentiments and Affection of the People” was the real American Revolution of the 18th century. Are we witnessing the very early beginnings of a new radical change today? Maybe, but as Samuel Adams made clear, it will require our “utmost circumspection, deliberation, fortitude and perseverance.”

Have you ever been attacked as a "statist" because something you support to expand liberty - in a big or small way - doesn’t "go far enough?" Join the club - we’ve heard this kind of thing from a subset of libertarians for years. But their all-or-nothing approach not only rejects the strategy of leading founders like Thomas Jefferson and John Dickinson, it also runs counter to the ideas of Mr. Libertarian himself.

The feds have no delegated power to impose wage controls under the original, legal meaning of the Constitution. Federal supremacists will quickly point to the commerce clause. But that constitutional argument for a federal minimum wage is as ignorant as the economic arguments.

What transpired before, during and after is a little-known - but incredibly important - part of the march towards independence.
